The Table: It's all about composition and lighting!
Last night the clouds moved out just in time for a great sunset. The sun and evening sky set this perfect golden glow over the waves, sand and beach grass. Making for great photography opportunities. Even the clouds in the last photo down, show that golden glow.
This picnic table which I am told just showed up one day after a storm, has been calling me. I've taken it's picture many times only to delete it because I just didn't like the composition and lighting. Last night however the lighting was maybe as perfect as it could be, so finally I'm keeping this one.
I think this table may be ready for a few friends to come, sit and enjoy this view.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
